Once Again About Dog Training

Types of Dog Training

Fetching on a hill is quite the same as fetching but on an inclined surface. You shouldn't train your dog like this before it is one year old, because running downwards is harmful for young joints and sinews. Start training on little low-angle hills and gradually increasing the length and steepness of the hill. For fit and strong dogs, the angle may be increased up to 50-60 degrees.
